Shirley Schrift, a.k.a. Shelley Winters, died today. As a kid, I knew her only from guest appearances on shows like "Fantasy Island" and, of course, her memorable turn in "The Poseidon Adventure."
She may have evolved into a punchline, but in her prime she was a helluva actress (and a pretty hot dame, as well). Check her out in "Lolita" (the original) and "The Night of the Hunter," two of my all-time faves.
